SOS

Since its conception over twenty years ago, S.O.S. has been a vital link to our church and community. S.O.S., the familiar symbol for "Help," is the foundation on which the group is built. When members of the group need help, whether it is a meal, card of encouragement, or a friendly listening ear, S.O.S. is there. Not only the members of the group benefit from their compassion, but members of the church, community, and world-wide mission endeavors benefit as well. Love offerings are used to help people in the community, different charitable organizations, and our men and women in the armed forces, to name just a few. They have sent animals to foreign countries, supplies to school projects overseas, and have adopted a girl from Brazil, sending monies to help make life easier and more meaningful. The acronym S.O.S. stands for "Save Our Sanity," "Share Ourselves," and "Serve Our Savior." Through life and spiritual lessons, the group grows and laughs together as they strive toward these precepts. The group meets the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in the home of its members. Everyone is invited!

 

Men’s Fellowship
